NCP attacks Centre over NCB asking states to take help in inter-state, int'l drug cases

National Congress Party spokesperson Nawab Malik criticised Centre on Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB) chief’s letter asking states to seek NCB’s help with cases having inter-state and international ramifications.

Malik said the NCB is trying to take cases from the state and asked if there is an ulterior motive. After meeting with Union Home Minister Amit Shah, NCB Chief S N Pradhan has written a letter to states, asking to identify a few cases in which NCB’s assistance may be sought so that larger drug nexus can be busted.

Malik on Friday said the definition of ‘top’ cases. “The motive and intention of the NCB, upon reading this letter, appears questionable. Why are they trying to infringe upon the rights of the state government when there is no provision in the NDPS act to do so? Is there an ulterior motive? NCB must answer the citizens of India,” tweeted Nawab Malik.

The NCB letter stated that in order to work towards the vision of “Nasha-Mukt Bharat”, there is a need for agencies to work in close partnership.

“It is also a desirable win-win approach against drug cartels and syndicates operating across state borders in the country. Such drug cases need to be identified & assistance of NCB may be sought for comprehensive investigation,” read the letter.

“During the DGP/IGP conference recently, the Union Home minister expressed his desire that every state should identify few such cases, preferably 3 to 5, having interstate/international ramifications and carry the investigations to logical conclusion, especially in terms of identifying and unearthing the entire network. This would be in the interest of the state as well as the country as a whole,” reads the letter.
